of all, last night in my analysis, i had no beef with president obama not mentioning the word of terrorism. i said, no, he has to wait until he sees the evidence before he defines it in any way. we know it is terrorism now and president said it's terrorism. i also said he used the word tragedy in a wrong way because it's much more than a tragedy. do you agree with that? >> i agree entirely. obama is not the first to use tragedy in describing events like this. a bus accident is a tragedy and attack is an act of war. when fdr addressed the congress after pearl harbor, he didn't say december 7th, a day that will live in tragedy, it is a day that will live in infamy. it has to do with agency and cause. an accident is a tragedy and it has a cause and has to do with fate, accident, luck. when the agency is human evil that is beyond a tragedy. it's a crime. that is what we're dealing with. i agree it's a little early. it was obvious an attack. to call it terrorism you had to be sure that the motive was a political one. remember what happened in the tucson shooting where a member of c
the benefits that come with it. president obama is aiming to change is with the affordable care act, more commonly known as obama care. >> the affordable care act is a fully encompassing health care act intended to provide insurance for millions of people who are not insured in america. obama as health care reform plan imposes new regulations on medical insurance companies that prevent them from dropping sick clients with pre- existing conditions. requires all americans to have health insurance or pay taxes. starting in 2014 with an individual mandates. >> another big part of obama care is to expand access to affordable health care coverage. many people who aren't -- were not covered by health care because he did their employer did not cover it or it was too expensive. >> people will believe law is unfair and unconstitutional believes everyone should have health care and have an equal opportunity to access health care. they believe the reform allure the cost of health insurance and greatly improve the economy. >> the industry in general feels that people need access to these products. the
points memo. president obama gave a rousing speech in boston today saying that the city would never give into violence and the nation will never be defeated by terrorists. this time next year on the third monday in april, the world will return to this great american city to run harder than ever and cheer even louder for that 118th boston marathon fill bill nice job with that speech. yesterday the president's tone was very different. he was angry about losing the gun control legislation in the senate. as you may know that body failed to pass background checks. five democrats even voted against the new law. all of them from progun states why did the background checks fail. sane people stopped from buying guns. every sane person knows that checks will not keep guns out of the bad people. they will buy weapons illegally. if the president were really serious about protecting malcolm jenkins from gun violence he would federalize gun crimes and attach a criminal justice component to the gun check legislation. here is what mr. obama should do. registering firearms should be in this country. use
president obama's agenda. why should you relate those two guys to immigration? no, let immigration go through. i hope they have the sense of know-how that when they bring this gun bill back -- they brought the health care bill back -- that they vote right. people in this country are hurting. all these republicans do, let's stop obama. republicans, wake up to rick the 90/10 want gun control. people all around the country want to elect this president and want to get his agenda to help this country. host: we will take a look at the prospects for gun control later on this morning. let's go to virginia, the independent line. caller: i just wanted to say that immigration has long been overdue, and we should not have any reason to put it off any more than we have. fromnot see the connection boston to immigration. you can never stop anybody that is wanting to do harm. the same thing in connecticut, the newtown shootings, anything like that. it is sporadic, no matter how much legislation you have, over immigration, gun control, anything like that. i do not think we can afford to put it off any

that kind of situation? >> we have a commitment to president obama that those individuals will be detained. what i have said to the chairman and the chain of command is that were afghanistan not to meet their commitment we would have a real operational policy issues to address at that particular time. i think we changed fundamentally the nature of our operations and certainly change the support we might provide to afghanistan in the future. we have an agreement with afghanistan to keep those people detained. were they to violate that commitment i am satisfied that would be a significant change in our relationship and the nature of our operations. >> thank you, general. i want the follow-up on the questions that senator iumenthal ask you about -- appreciated your testimony. sponsor of the contractor enemy permission. as a result of that we have introduced legislation called"never contractinfg with the enemy." made significant progress. to fill in some of the gaps, including dropping the contract level from 100,000 to 20,000, as you had mentioned earlier, it is not just the dot that is contr

to michelle obama for raising the national conversation about obesity and health and nutrition. on the one side. on the other hand, too, these products are so compelling. i like to call them the foods we hate to love because, you know, it's hard to talk about something that you love to eat in negative, in negative tones. >> host: michael moss, what was the reception from the food companies when you approached them about "salt sugar fat"? >> guest: i think that they were actually -- i mean, i was surprised by how willing they were to talk to me. and i started off with a trove of internal documents which helped tremendously. these thousands and thousands of pages put me at the table as the largest companies were plotting and planning and formulating their way to creating new products. those documents enabled me to convince their top scientists, marketing officials, ceos in some cases to talk to me and reveal even more secrets. and so -- and i was really surprised by how many companies have a cabal of insiders who are genuinely concerned about obesity and health issues associated with their p
had a chance to fly back with president obama for the special mass that we had -- special service we had at the holy cross cathedral. i have to honestly say i have not seen my president so mad, so angry, so frustrated as he was at that vote that was basically forced by the n.r.a. on the republican caucus in the u.s. senate. i think that ed is right in the sense in that we have to make sure the forces for accountability are greater than the forces of the n.r.a. and of these special interest groups whoever they may be. there should be a course of independence. i'm happy to say that i have always taken that independence stand. i have suffered for it sometimes, and -- but i think -- look, i know who i work for in the united states house. i know who i'll work for in the united states senate. it won't be any democratic leaders. it won't be the people who picked mr. markey. it will be the people of massachusetts that i work for. >> mr. markey. >> look, i'm proud to have been endorsed by the "boston globe" yesterday. and by the sierra club. and by groups that are trying to end gun violence,
obama. he spoke at the interfaith service yesterday. he is talking to one of the men involved with the marathon, matt. he told him that he will run again. some of the people off the limbs -- lsot limbs. does that give you hope or inspiration? caller: of course. the human spirit is here to stay, but we have a lot of problems to work out. we have to start raising our children right. host: you can see more images from yesterday's interfaith service. the mayor of boston, the governor of massachusetts, and others were there at yesterday's service. bernard in washington, d.c., independent caller. caller: good morning, thanks for taking my call. it's my first time. washington and maryland should be able to have a gun. there's a good opportunity you may be able to take out one person. host: explain what you mean by ccw. caller: that is a concealed carry permit. there's a chance maybe a terrorist or someone could take out one person in the neighborhood. but to be able to take out a neighbo -- out a whole neighborhood where everybody is armed, it would never happen in this country. host
a couple weeks ago, anything you say against obama is good policy. that is his opinion and that the way he's going. should be tried in federal court, because they have a couple options -- the death .enalty if he does not want to cooperate, they could go ahead with the death penalty. then you'll see how fast he turns. as far as being a military combatant, no, that's out of the question. he is a u.s. citizen. hanks for the call from south carolina. i want to show you a few of the front pages. this is the boston globe this morning. several other stories about the attacks. boston paper with the bombing on the front page, this is "the guardian out of london. if a picture on the front page shows runners observing a moment of silence before the start of the london marathon yesterday, less than a week after the attacks at the boston marathon. is up next from massachusetts on the republican line. caller: he is an enemy combatant. an 8-year-old boy with a bomb. he used his telephone to say he wanted to kill more americans, so he proved that. he was an enemy. host: the you think that he should end up
a joke. >> oh, yeah! >>> the star of one of president obama's favorite tv shows is attending the white house correspondents' dinner this weekend, claire danes plays a c.i.a. agent on homeland. she's the guest of cbs news and will be sitting at a table full of members of the military. the network's other guests include afghanistan forces commander general john allen also army vice chief of staff general john campbell and retired admiral mike mullen, the former joint chiefs of staff. among others. >> bill: i will be there. that's not the table i'm sitting at. i wouldn't mind sitting at that table. >>> as you're drinking your coffee or tea this morning there is a good chance you went out of your way to get it instead of going for what was convenient. a new harris poll on morning beverage habits finds 60% of people will go out of their way to drink coffee or tea they think tastes better and they'll also spend more money for it. 78% say taste is the most important factor in choosing what they drink. >> bill: what do they mean going out of their way to get it? >> instead of stopping by the 7
discretion to certify when this is substantially complete. president obama states it in a speech in the past though that he believed the border fence was basically complete. if you determine little or no additional fencing is necessary, what do think we this initial certify that it has been completed? is passed as it is think we written, i will move very quickly. we have sector by sector technology plans. we have not been sitting back waiting for a bill to pass. very quickly. >> do you believe the discretion could permit you to make a finding that is complete without building any additional fencing? right now the border patrol has done an extensive study of where fencing make sense across the southwest border. there were 653 miles. we would go back and look at the kind of fencing is. he can do this for humanitarian purposes to ensure family unity. in what situations which you think about granting the waiver? caveat on myo have the answers. see that there would be considerations based on the aid of a conviction, whether the individual was the primary wage , ther for the family record sent a p

. this is the "washington times" this morning. so president obama is headed to boston tomorrow. the washington post has this -- athens, ohio, ain democrat. caller: the situation in boston is really horrific and the people who did it clearly need to be brought to justice. msnbc i heard someone talking about who we are as a people and he gave amazing examples of nurses and other citizens who came to the aid of the injured and those killed in the situation. he w spoke ho we are not. he said we are not people who maim people. clearly that the case in the u.s. but when we look at ourselves -- and i've not making any excuses for this type of horrific behavior, but we have to reflect upon our own behavior overseas.ou peoplenes, the innocent who have died in iraq because unnecessary war. i'm not saying the people in boston are tied to this, but they could be. we do bomb and maim innocent people. i'm not saying this is the case, that this is retaliation, but it is possible. we need to look at our own do overseas aswe well as who did this, and they need to be brought to justice, but so do we. host: mike in mass
review board. clearly even john kerry is not confident in the obama administration's versions of the verns -- events. kerry promised the committee that he would clear the air, in his words, though he also repeatedly used the phrase that clears the air needs to be done so we can move on to far more important issues. and i am so grateful to secretary kerry for taking that position. we do need to get to the truth. dead d at benghazi, the americans cry out for truth. hose who were harmed and hurt, americans there deserve the truth. opefully we will get that. mr. speaker, with so much suffering and anguish right now in america, it is still the greatest nation in the history of the world. and may god guide the leadership in this country, that we don't drop the ball and fail on our watch. that we show ourselves to be worthy recipients of the gifts of liberty given to us by prior nerations, all coming as the founders noted as a gift from god. ith that i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. the chair will entertain a motion to adjourn

conference president obama spoke from the white house. >> good evening, everybody. tonight our nation is in debt to the people of boston and the people of massachusetts. after a vicious attack on their city the people of boston responded with resolve and determinations. they did their part as citizens and partners in the investigation. boston police, state police, and local police responded with professionalism and bravery over five long days. tonight, because of their determined efforts we've closed an important chapter in this tragedy. i've been briefed earlier this evening after the attacks on monday, i directed the full resources of the federal government to be made available to help state, local authorities in the investigation and to increase security as needed. over the past week, close coordination over state and local officials to track down leads has been critical to this effort. they all work as they should, as a team. we are extremely grateful for that. we o'a tremendous debt of gratitude to all of our law enforcement professionals. these men and women get up every day an
is to kill them overseas before they get here. i think president obama has been doing a pretty good job of that in the past few years. immigration is a very complex issue. that is my basic take on that. the: colonel larsen, one of earlier caller talked about the family of the suspect. the ap said it talk to the father of the two young men. the father of the suspects in the boston marathon bombing said his son on a list is a smart and accomplished young man. smart on the loose is a and accomplished young man. that is from the associated press, who reached the father of the two suspects in russia. call is from it in maryland. would like to i thank the colonel for his service. i wanted to ask the -- asking a question concerning terrorism and its definition. i believe political terrorism, of course, is widely known and accepted. but there is also secular terrorism, as shown in bosnia, alsoxample, and probably institutionalized care as we experienced in nazi germany and bosnia recently. i would like your comments on that. guest: i have been doing some work with survivors of the siege and the
as well as the nomination of sylvia burr well, president obama's pick to head the office of management and budget. and for more on thenline sales tax bill we spoke earlie a r withpil reporter. >> they're going to be focusing on an issue that i think really hasn't gotten a whole lot of attention but it is going to affect most americans and that is, whether or not you pay sales taxes when you buy something online. this is a huge issue for your pocketbook if you buy something on amazon.com or ebay. chances are pretty good right now that you don't pay sales taxes on that purchase but you do if you go to wal-mart.com, or if you go to a brick-and-mortar store and that is because of these convoluted rules who has charge letaxes and who doesn't. the senate wants to, or at least looks like a majority of the senate is going to pass this bill this week. 75 senators voted for a version of this bill a few weeks ago when the senate passed its budget resolution. it is a nonbinding vote. this would be a binding bill that would then go over to the house and it would -- >> what would the bill -- >> very
complement president obama's request and reflect the undisputable fact that statehood won the november referendum. puerto rico stands in a far different place today than it did six months ago. an historic referendum was held. the president responded to the results and congress now has the responsibility to act. those who seek the equality and progress for puerto rico are on the forward march while those who support the same old status quote are in retreat would drive the debate, while they merely react to the debate. and in the end mindful that the arc of history's long bends the justice, i am confident we will prevail. thank you, mr. speaker. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the chair recognizes the gentlewoman from california, ms. lee, for ive minutes. ms. lee: thank you, mr. speaker. let me first send my thoughts and prayers to the city of boston, families and friends and all those touched by yesterday's horrific tragedy. an incredible strength on full display in the streets of boston when untold numbers of people, the police, firefighters, volunteers, r
